Purchasing stuff for your kids can be addictive. Especially babies. Before you know it you have 47 onesies, 56 blankets, 4 mobiles, and more wall decals than you have walls. I’m not that bad but I could be if I didn’t check myself and my account at the register/check out screen. I can’t lie though, I was getting a little out of hand when I was pregnant and on bed rest. I had nothing else to do so I blogged and shopped all day long. Check out these 7 questions to ask yourself before purchasing and save yourself come coins and disagreements with Hubby.
You see protein bars everywhere these days. Literally every store sells them. I’ve tried them and I’m sure you have too; but did you like them? I found some for I liked and purchased for a while. They didn’t taste too bad and I thought I was doing the right thing by having a protein bar for an afternoon snack. When I began to look more into the ingredients I was consuming I stopped buying them as much.
I did a little searching for vegan protein bars and I found a few that weren’t very palatable. After that I just gave up. Fast forward to the day Moms Meet emailed me and said “hey, wanna try these refrigerated protein bars?”. I thought to myself if the bars have to be refrigerated they must be natural which means they must be healthy. I agreed and I’m hooked!
With more and more food documentaries hitting our TV screens, most people are looking to purchase more organic and natural foods. But what about our skin care and oral care products? Did you forget those? I know I did for a while. A few years ago I was in Whole Foods after work for groceries and still needed to make a Target run for toothpaste. I was tired and decided to go with whatever Whole Foods had to offer. I strolled the aisle and found an Himalaya Bontanique Herbal Toothpaste. The flavor was pomegranate & neem and the price was right so I went with it.
Hey Mamas! Let’s talk menstrual cycles for a few. Don’t be shy, we all get one, used to get one or have a daughter that will get one. I’ll go first.
My cycle came late at age 12 or 13. I was the last of all my friends. My cycle was never “normal”. At age 15 or so my Mama took me to the GYN and I was diagnosed with PCOS. I really liked that doc but the older I go I realized she described PCOS all wrong. I was under the impression I would NEVER be able to have kids without surgery or supplements. I was prescribed birth control pills and sent on my way.
I know right? Why on earth would I feed my kid frozen meals with all those “ingredients” and sodium? Well, I didn’t…and don’t plan to. But no shade if that’s your thing. When I was given the opportunity to try frozen meals by Luvo I was skeptical. I definitely checked out the website before committing. Obviously I was impressed enough to accept the offer and I’m so glad I did!
I was able to read the entire package without pulling out my science dictionary and the nutritional facts didn’t make me feel like I’d need a lifetime prescription for HCTZ post consumption. Was that too much medical jargon? My bad. Anyhoo, after reading the packaging and website I was a bit concerned about taste. Could a freezer meal that’s not terrible for you actually taste good? I had to wait and see.
